    Yes, it’s a long day, but all transfers were smooth and the experience was memorable and well worth it. Our guide, Rashid, was knowledgeable, warm, and attentive. We traversed the city at a steady but reasonable clip, covering lots of history and local flavor.

    Yes, there are commercially driven visits, but Rashid was up front about all of it. Lunch was good, the views of the city were spectacular, and the opportunity to spend a day in Tangier was well worth it. We are intrepid and experienced travelers. There’s no way we could have successfully navigated the whole thing as we did with Rashid. I would have loved to have had more than a day to visit, but that’s what we had, and we crushed it.

    Our driver who took us back and forth to Tarifa was perfect as well, very attentive and friendly as well.

    A rich experience that we will savor. Good travel leaves you wanting for more-on to the next adventure.

    This trip was 17 hours long. We met at the tourist office at 7am and we returned to my hotel at midnight without any dinner. You must be extremely physically fit to take this tour. any person who has heart problems, breathing problems, foot or walking problems should not take this tour. Viator must be totally honest and tell people what to expect. The tour guide Isaac was excellent and always looked out for the welfare of his tourists.

    The trip is a value when one considers the time involved. We left Seville around 0730 and returned around 2300. The bus ride was comfortable and our hostess was very pleasant Upon arrival at the ferry, we had to go through customs (which isn't pleasant in any circumstances) and board the ferry boat which was clean but non memorable.

    Upon arriving in Tangier, we boarded a bus which was hosted by a local guide. He Spanish was good and his English was fair. He offered some guidance but not a lot of value. Nice guy; none the less. The bus ride to us past some nicer homes in the hills until we met a clearing for those that had to get the camel ride experience. To me, a waste of time. We continued to some caves which was interesting. The good news, all were brief. We then continued to the main part of town where we exited for lunch. We entered an establishment solely for tourists and had couscous topped with vegetables and chicken (along with some chicken skewers.

    We were then lead to a building which looked to be a fabricated medical / Pharma facility and given a presentation of Moroccan goods. This was a soft sell but, in my mind, was a total waist of an hour of time. We then were lead to the main market place where we had less than an hour to wonder the markets. We returned to customs and boarded the bus.

    The trip was worth the money if you want to see Morocco from Seville. I would rather see the company offer an option where one has the complete freedom to wander the streets and eat rather than being herded around with little to no shopping time.

    We had the fabulous day albeit very long. Our guide Lapinta was awesome. She was always making sure everyone was having a great time and her explanations along the way were brilliant. We were greeted by the Moroccan guide Rasheed who accompanied us along with Lapinta for the Moroccan part of the day and he was also a delight. The sights and experiences were wonderful. The only negative I might make is that the lunch included in the tour was in my opinion far from typical. It was so touristy and the waiter kept pushing for a tip as well as the musicians that were playing kept passing around a tray for payment. The food was uninteresting and bland so maybe a more traditional eating place might be better as the restaurant was filled to capacity with bus tour patrons. All in all a great value for money tour that lasted 17 hours.

    I would definitely recommend this tour company. Our guide Lupita was fantastic. She made an enjoyable trip even greater. They’re well organized and did everything they could to ensure our comfort

    If your idea of fun and money well spent includes: a 16 hours day filled with long and chaotic lineups at a ferry terminal with people who clearly dont know what lining up means, mixed in with a piss poor excuse of an lunch followed by mediocre tour guides who rushed through sites only to drop you off at different sites designed to extract money from you then this is for you! Plus the people of tangiers are just filled with annoying opportunist hawkers and it's just downright disgusting and dirty of a city.

    We enjoyed the tour, knowing that it would be an endurance challenge ahead of time. The Seville pick portion is the least reliable part of the tour. 5:30 am pick ups meant that only 9 of the 17 people on the tour actually made the bus. Our pick up time was changed only the day before to this early hour and we only found out about it by stopping in a TI office and checking the afternoon before the tour. The minibus was new and comfortable. I think the company has high turnover on guides being this is a 17 hour day. Our guide was only 4 days into the job and she could not comprehend English that was off of the script that well. All in all she did a good job handling the ferry tickets as well as shepherding the group through Tangier with the Moroccan guide Rashid "John Travolta". You can avoid standing in the long line for the Moroccan passport stamp on the trip over to Tangier on the ferry if you wait until the end of the trip over when the line thins. Ferry was clean and had food sales and duty free shopping. Rashid took you around to beach sights, camel rides, residential streets and markets as well as a sit down dinner. Do not expect cleanliness as bathrooms and tableware were dirty. Tour company pushed you through their carpet shop and perfume factory for a sales pitch. Last hour and a half were spent at your leisure in the old town. Expect to run a gauntlet of pushy street vendors at various times in the back half of the tour. They come out of the woodwork from everywhere. Camera moments like snake charmers are also part of the schtick. Tangier area is pretty with the beaches, newer royal palace areas and distinct neighborhoods.

    We had a great day. Katherine the guide from Naturanda was very professional and friendly and so was Rashid the Moroccan guide. I was looking forward to ride camels and buy a prayer rug in the Médina. So I was very pleased. Lunch was ok but the Sultán palace was closed due to Ramadan. The crossing was very smooth and the temperature was 73 Fahrenheit so we were able to enjoy the place. It is fast paced so is not really for little kids and the street vendors are a nuisance but not dangerous at all. I felt very safe all the time and the streets are very clean and easily walkable.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    A very long day but well worth the time spent. Our local guide Rafeek in Tangiers was excellent.
    This tour Included lunch and the tour operator confirmed 3 kosher meals via email and when we arrived at the restaurant in Tangiers for lunch there was no meals for the kosher party of 3. No effort was made to repair the situation. The tour guide from seville Ms Irene was not very concerned . She stated that she was not told about it and was very unprofessional. Tangiers was a fabulous place to visit and the Tour operator did a good job in getting the group across the boarder to Morocco.

    Full-Day equated to 16 hours from pick up at hotel to drop-off at same. Bus was roomy (3 hours to Tarifa and 3 hours back) and guide (Catherine) was very informative and entertaining. The whole passport/customs debacle needs streamlining. The ferry hit rough water coming back to the extent that barf bags were handed out. Tour begins with a bus ride through Tangiers with stops for camal riding (2 euro for a 1 minute ride), Hurcules caves and an overlook of the city followed by lunch, which was better than most other reviews claim (drinks are 1 euro each) and then drop off at the old city market area. Taken to a shop that sold scarves and then a pharmacy (both give the guide kick-backs) then given free time which amounted to 30 minutes. I wouldn't do it again but it was an experience I'll never forget.
